The most common misconception when soloing with the major pentatonic is that you can use the same shapes as you do in minor, you just move the shape down three frets.

This has never and will never sound right and consequently very few guitar players can solo in major, let alone freely improvise!

Instead you have to connect the major pentatonic with a major chord shape. Later on you can then also build all major modes on top of your major pentatonic.
